MN DNR Confirms Chronic Wasting Disease In Harvested Deer

(St. Paul, MN) — The state Department of Natural Resources has confirmed a case of chronic wasting disease in a deer harvested in southeastern Minnesota. The deer was killed near Wabasha in early October. The agency is requiring testing in that region due to the discovery of the disease in nearby areas of Wisconsin. The DNR has tested thousands of deer for the disease since 2002, but has only discovered 236 cases in that time.
